Details for P-balloon timer fix
SMW Patches - P-balloon timer fix
File Name: P-balloon timer fix
Added: 2017-01-04 01:00:03 AM
Authors: GreenHammerBro
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: Yes
Featured: No
Description: Fixes a bug where the p-balloon timer does not freeze when $9D is set (such as L and R scrolling).

-You can now cancel balloon at any time by pressing a button (A by default)
-Fixes a bug that only exist via ASM methods that clears the timer (to #$00); the countdown decrements the timer BEFORE checking if its zero, making it possible to decrement it to #$FF and refilling the timer.
-Fixes additional bug (can be turned off if you want to) that Mario retains his state (spinjump, air flag, etc) prior grabbing it.

See patch's comments for more fixes.

Thanks. And a better alternative than LR scrolling to make it end quickly.

A nicely done patch here. Manages to fix those annoying bugs related to the $9D flag as well add new function to it. Good job!

UPDATE2: Now includes Alcaro's (with permission) balloon facing fix patch. That patch itself has a strange bug where you can face left or right during freeze, so I fixed that and also fix the Left+Right D-pad issue.

Also now includes a "fix" that the player would lose his p-balloon if he is in his powerup animation (such as small balloon mario grabbing a mushroom).

Guys, I updated the file to allow the player to cancel the balloon via button. See the updated Description.

If that refers to my comment then no. I did not mean canceling the balloon like that.

If you want to cancel the balloon, use this one.

I'm pretty sure I already saw a Kaizo hack using this glitch. Not sure if it's in this hacks section though.

The glitch gives the player a bit more control over the p-balloon as well so it can get used creatively

If a hack tries to use this glitch to create intentionally artificial difficulty, please have the hack rejected.

This bug is gonna show up in a Kaizo in 5, 4, 3, 2...
